3S-GTE Celica
Just to give everyone A heads up HCI Magazine has a 4 page article on a 3S-GTE Celica that's eating up 350Z's, s2000's, turbocharged RX-7's and the list goes on. It's not on the cover, it's in the middle of the magazine.
I always like when a Toyota is stopping on other cars, especially when it's a Celica doing it. thumbsup

I just picked up this issue today, anyone got an estimate on how much was spent on this (excluding the car and bodykit)?

If you guys are talking about the 7th gen with the 3SGTE in it, then the owner of the car i think is also the owner of the garage that did all the work. He might have a kit out soon though, but its gonna be up in the $10,000 range (including engine, install, mounts, and maybe built internals with a larger turbo)

You could technically just get a bone stock Celica GT (seeings everything that makes the GTS different from the GT is removed (except brakes), and then do all this stuff for it and it would be around $28,000 give or take. The Celica GT last I knew you could get for around $18,000. So you would realistacly be spending just around $5000 more then a Celica GTS correct?

Thats with engine, I'm looking at buying a 3S-GTE, I would just buy the mounts and harness from him.
